Danilo Djuricic – The Latest Canadian Crimson
Danilo Djuricic has announced his commitment to Harvard University. The 6’8 Forward at St. Michael’s College is in his senior year and has a very accomplished resume in his young career.
He’s been a member of the National Team, he’s won an OFSAA Championship, several tournament MVPs, won dunk competitions and has been productive at every level he’s competed at.
In his output with Team Canada over the last two FIBA International events, Djruicic had a near double-double averaging 12 points, 9 rebounds and 1 assist.
Djuricic’s list was narrowed down to Harvard, Princeton, Penn and Grand Canyon until he made his decision, and today he becomes the 6th Canadian to join the Crimson basketball roster and the first ever from St. Michael’s to commit to Harvard for basketball.
At Harvard he’s going to work towards continuing to make the transition to the play more as a Small Forward. He’s played positions 3-5 his entire career and can be used in a variety of ways. Djuricic’s improved three point shooting allows him to really stretch the floor at either forward positions.
Patrick Steeves, Laurent Rivard, Agunwa Okolie, Chris Egi and Corey Johnson have been the Canadians to put on the Crimson uniform. Danilo Djuricic continues Harvard’s pipeline into Massachusetts under coach Tommy Amaker.
